    BMW has been the brand name for comfort and stylish automotive. Now the company has entered the urban transport vehicle segment with its folding electric vehicle concept. This segment has seen vehicles from the start-ups and idealistic entrepreneurs. This is the first time a company with such a wide reach is entering this segment. The experienced heads at BMW have signalled an intention to get in on the action. Mini CitySurfer is what the company calls this concept vehicle. The Mini CitySurfer can be folded and is compact enough that it can be carried on buses and trains or thrown in the back…
  • Review: Three Cheap Smartphones To Consider

    Top Tech News
    28 Nov 2014 | 3:58 am
    The cheapest smartphones don't have all the gizmos of Apple or Samsung models, but I'm impressed by how many features you do get for roughly a third of the price. Processors are slower, yet that's not so noticeable for basic tasks such as email, Facebook and weather checks. Video and audio are also enjoyable, as long as I'm not expecting the same performance I get on high-end phones. Batteries don't last quite as long without a recharge but I still got about seven hours of streaming video on Hulu. Do I really need the nine to 12 hours I can get with an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy? Because you…

    Social media campaigns are not just about getting retweets, repins and likes. The aim of such campaigns is to build long-term and meaningful relationships with your target audience. However, many marketers have resorted to ‘bribing’ users to make them perform specific actions.

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

  • That Time I Interviewed Click and Clack

    Harry McCracken
    3 Nov 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Back in the summer of 1997, I got my one and only assignment for a magazine called The Web, back when it seemed like it made sense to publish reviews and profiles relating to websites on dead trees. It turned out to be one of the most entertaining projects I ever worked on: I profiled Tom and Ray Magliozzi, better known as Click and Clack of public radio’s Car Talk. When I saw the sad news today that Tom had passed away at 77, the memories came flooding back. I made contact with the Car Talk team by getting the phone number of their production company.

Along with his wife Charlotte, he’d just switched coasts from New York to San Francisco in order to start a media consultancy.

    Buick owners enjoying their car’s built-in LTE in a photo provided by GM Last week, General Motors invited me to a press event at which it showed off some new Buicks. Normally, such events involve driving new cars. But when we hit the road during this one, I willingly sat in the back seat and fooled around with my phone and tablet–because the primary purpose of the event was to demonstrate the 4G LTE broadband and Wi-Fi hotspot features built into the cars. Across its brands, GM is being particularly aggressive about rolling out in-vehicle LTE connectivity. Most Buick models,…

  • Single Pixel Camera Takes Images Through Breast Tissue

    timothy
    28 Nov 2014 | 4:18 pm
    KentuckyFC writes Single pixel cameras are currently turning photography on its head. They work by recording lots of exposures of a scene through a randomising media such as frosted glass. Although seemingly random, these exposures are correlated because the light all comes from the same scene. So its possible to number crunch the image data looking for this correlation and then use it to reassemble the original image. Physicists have been using this technique, called ghost imaging, for several years to make high resolution images, 3D photos and even 3D movies. Now one group has replaced the…

    "Don't face plant in front of Brian Boitano." A lifelong figure skating fan raised in the golden era of American skating, this interviewer couldn't reject a chance to talk to the Brian Boitano ... while on ice. Tumbling nose first into the frozen rink, while smashing both my teeth and sequin dreams, seemed worth the risk. So during New York City's first punch of winter weather, on a Wednesday morning before parka-wrapped tourists descended on Central Park's Trump Rink, I met Boitano to talk food, South Park and, of course, skating.

    Norwegian writer Mette Newth once wrote that: "Censorship has followed the free expressions of men and women like a shadow throughout history." As we develop new means to gather and create information, new means to control, erase and censor that information evolve alongside it. Today, that means access to information through the internet, which motivates us to study internet censorship. Organizations such as Reporters Without Borders, Freedom House, or the Open Net Initiative periodically report on the extent of censorship worldwide. But as countries that are fond of censorship are not…

    Asset forfeiture may be the greatest scam perpetuated on the American people by their government -- and it's all legal. For the most part, assets seized translate directly to monetary or physical gains for the agencies doing the seizing, an act often wholly separated from any American ideals of due process. The New York Times recently obtained recording of asset forfeiture conferences which showed prosecutors advising cops on how to best exploit these programs to obtain additional funds and goods for their respective law enforcement agencies. In short, it appears that many agencies use asset…

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:40 pm
    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

    After the last two weeks of abnormally hot weather on the Central Coast, things finally cooled down and my running heated up some at the 2014 XTERRA Point Mugu 18K trail race. The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

    I completed the Bulldog 25K trail race this past weekend, August 23 2014. This was my longest and only second trail race. After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

    After finishing the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K race in May, I took some time to pick my next challenge. I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

    I ran the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K Trail Run on Saturday and it was hot. The good news was that it wasn’t as hot as it had been all week (high 90’s and low 100’s) but it was still plenty hot in the high 80’s. This was my first of hopefully many trail races and it was a bit of a beast. I decided to do the race about three weeks ago and only had one chance to check out part of the course. I blogged about that experience in my pre-race report. Having never tried to tackle the infamous Bulldog Road portion of the course before, I tried to figure out how tough it…

    Before Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was even released a trailer made its way online which showed off that the game could have a zombie mode. When the game did arrive as expected on November 4th the zombie mode was nowhere to be found. Many suspected that it might arrive in a later update. Today a trailer has been officially released which confirms the new Call of Duty zombie mode, and we now know that this is actually called Exo Zombies.The trailer shows a soldier signalling an extraction by lighting up a flare only to be swarmed by zombies. As the soldier runs out of ammo he runs towards…

    It’s a known fact Motorola is partial to Cyber Monday deals rather than Black Friday price cuts, and this holiday season is no exception to the rule. The second-generation Moto X will be on sale December 1, starting at 11 am CT.

    Boosted by Microsoft’s sensible decision to discard Windows licensing fees on small screens, tablet manufacturers like HP and Toshiba have engaged in a wild price race to the bottom of late. Both offer solid sub-$100 Windows 8.1 7 inchers nowadays, but unfortunately for them, Micro Center has somehow gone even lower than $99.

    Adrian Diaconescu
    28 Nov 2014 | 2:12 pm
    As expected, the lukewarm critical reception of HTC’s quirky little RE Camera likely translated into paltry box-office numbers so far. Otherwise, there would be no reason for the pipe-like shooter’s makers to already take a whopping half off RE’s price. A sudden spurt of generosity could be another possible explanation, we guess, but we’ve stopped believing in… Continue reading HTC slices RE Camera price to just $100 for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday Related posts: Motorola cooks up $140 discount on no-contract Moto X 2014 for Cyber Monday AT&T (partially) reveals Black…

  • WWI's March on Technologies

    Peter Suciu
    28 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    When the "Guns of August" began firing 100 years ago, few expected it to be a long war, and fewer still expected it to be a "World War." However, the "Great War," as it was known to contemporaries, in fact was destined to become the First World War -- and it truly was the first modern war. Today it is easy to look back at the Second World War for providing great technical advancements. It ushered in the atomic bomb, jet aircraft and even Silly Putty; however, the First World War also was a war of great technological advances.
  • The One Really Important Apple Watch Thing

    Chris Maxcer
    26 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    While the cellphone nearly killed the wristwatch, the Apple Watch gizmo actually will revive it. In fact, I think the attention that the Apple Watch will bring to our wrists will spark sales of traditional watches. Why? I believe there is a latent desire to have a wristwatch -- to have the convenience of the time on your wrist without the need to pull out your smartphone and ignore the world around you. I think -- hope -- that the Apple Watch actually will lead people to slow down the movement of hand to pocket and pocket to face.

    The Practice of Cloud System Administration, Volume 2 is a look into IT gone bad in some companies, and how doing it right can salvage enterprise use of cloud computing. The authors make 11 statements about computers and their networks on the first page of the book's preface. They ask which statements are true. If you get most of them correct, you probably have only one reason left to read this book: It will challenge some of what you hold valid. However, you most likely will get numerous wrong answers.

    A sophisticated malware program called "Regin" has been used in systematic spying campaigns against a range of international targets since at least 2008, Symantec reported. Regin is a backdoor-type Trojan with a structure that displays a degree of technical competence rarely seen in malware, according to Symantec. "Its elegance is comparable to Stuxnet and [it is] much more elegant than Flame," said Scott Borg, CEO of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit. "It's a beautiful piece of architecture."

    Has software glut got you down? Do you reuse passwords because creating unique ones for all your online accounts would cause a memory overload? If your answer to those questions is yes, you may be interested in a bit of jewelry called the "Everykey," by a startup with the same name. Everykey is a wristband that, combined with software and the cloud, removes the need to remember the countless log-in credentials we use every day. What's more, it will work with electronic locks, too -- like car doors.

  • Review: Three Cheap Smartphones To Consider

    28 Nov 2014 | 3:58 am
    The cheapest smartphones don't have all the gizmos of Apple or Samsung models, but I'm impressed by how many features you do get for roughly a third of the price. Processors are slower, yet that's not so noticeable for basic tasks such as email, Facebook and weather checks. Video and audio are also enjoyable, as long as I'm not expecting the same performance I get on high-end phones. Batteries don't last quite as long without a recharge but I still got about seven hours of streaming video on Hulu. Do I really need the nine to 12 hours I can get with an iPhone or Samsung Galaxy? Because you…
  • Holiday Shopping: Lots of Tablet Choices, Oh My!

    27 Nov 2014 | 4:04 am
    Time for a tablet? People tend to hold onto tablets longer than smartphones, so take time to weigh your options. A major consideration is what phone you or your gift recipient already has. Although it's possible for Android owners to have Apple's iPads, for instance, there are advantages to sticking within the same system. You often can buy apps just once and share them across both devices, and you don't need to learn two different systems. Here are some buying tips organized by system. Prices listed are for base models. You can typically spend more for additional storage or LTE cellular…
  • Sizing Up What Apple's $700B Market Cap Could Buy

    27 Nov 2014 | 3:16 am
    Apple's market value surpassed $700 billion in Tuesday trading, an unprecedented milestone among U.S. companies. Shares backtracked in the afternoon, closing down $1.03 at $117.60 -- leaving Apple up 47 percent this year with a still-staggering market value of $690 billion. Exxon Mobil Corp. is a distant second with a market value of about $400 billion. The iPhone and iPad maker is worth so much that it stretches the imagination. Consider the buying power of $700 billion: -- It could buy 935 million models of the iPhone 6 Plus with 16 gigabytes of storage. That would be nearly enough to…
  • Google's Latest: A Spoon that Steadies Tremors

    27 Nov 2014 | 3:16 am
    Just in time for the holidays, Google is throwing its money, brain power and technology at the humble spoon. Of course these spoons (don't call them spoogles) are a bit more than your basic utensil: Using hundreds of algorithms, they allow people with essential tremors and Parkinson's Disease to eat without spilling. The technology senses how a hand is shaking and makes instant adjustments to stay balanced. In clinical trials, the Liftware spoons reduced shaking of the spoon bowl by an average of 76 percent.

  • Watch this haunting drone footage of Chernobyl ruins

    Becca Caddy
    28 Nov 2014 | 8:39 am
    Just when we thought drone videos were getting a bit dull, along comes this haunting compilation of footage taken during a flyover of Pripyat, Chernobyl, which proves that the best way to get a true feel of such a remote location is always by drone. Filmaker Danny Cooke visited Chernobyl, the infamous site of a nuclear disaster back in 1986, while working for CBS News earlier in the year. The result is an eerily beautiful mixture of sweeping views of Pripyat’s post-apocalyptic ruins, coupled with close-up shots of abandoned classrooms, homes and funfairs. Video via Danny Cooke’s…

    Called Black Friday because it puts retailers in the black, rather than because it’s the one day in the shopping calendar when sense and manners go out the window, the day after Thanksgiving has been a traditional bargain-hunting time in the U.S for a long time. And, perhaps finally catching on that people would prefer to buy things cheaply BEFORE Christmas, shops on this side of the pond have got on board this year in a big way. Which on one hand is great because yay, bargains but on the other is terrible because hello, what happened to basic human decency? No sooner had Tesco stores…

    To paraphrase part of a quote from legendary author Douglas Adams, when it comes to technology anything released after you turn 35 is against the natural order of things. While that is a bit of a massive generalisation, there are people out there, especially older people, who don’t really get technology and find it difficult to get their heads around. That’s where Breezie comes in. Breezie is tablet software designed for people over the age of 65, and it promises to be simple and non-patronising so that older people who aren’t confident with technology can still enjoy the…

    So, it’s Black Friday: that horrifying post-Thanksgiving day of hysteria and mad scrambling for the sales which has somehow osmosed into British society from America. The term ‘Black Friday’ originates from the city of Philadelphia, where swarms of frantic pedestrians would cause massive disruptions to traffic. Another explanation, according to Wikipedia, is that retailers traditionally operated at a financial loss (‘in the red’) from January till November, and ‘Black Friday’ indicates the point at which retailers come back ‘in the…

There are many things the older, wiser, more experienced person we’ve become could share with that younger individual. Even the most successful tech founders wish they could rewind to the past and impart some wisdom on their former, less…

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (University of California - Davis) High-tech genomics and traditional Chinese medicine come together as researchers identify the genes responsible for the intense bitter taste of wild cucumbers.

  • Social media data contain pitfalls for understanding human behavior

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (McGill University) A growing number of academic researchers are mining social media data to learn about both online and offline human behavior. In recent years, studies have claimed the ability to predict everything from summer blockbusters to fluctuations in the stock market. But mounting evidence of flaws in many of these studies points to a need for researchers to be wary of serious pitfalls that arise when working with huge social media data sets.

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (Carnegie Mellon University) The rise of social media has seemed like a bonanza for behavioral scientists, who have eagerly tapped the social nets to quickly and cheaply gather huge amounts of data about what people are thinking and doing. But computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University and McGill University warn that those massive datasets may be misleading.

    26 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    (Tufts University) New catalysts designed and investigated by Tufts engineering researchers and collaborators have potential to greatly reduce processing costs in future fuels like hydrogen. The catalysts are composed of a unique structure of single gold atoms bound by oxygen to sodium or potassium atoms, supported on non-reactive silica materials. They demonstrate comparable activity and stability with catalysts comprising precious metal nanoparticles on rare earth and other reducible oxide supports when used in producing highly purified hydrogen.

  • Monitor Vendors Eyeing 5K Units In 2015

    28 Nov 2014 | 3:11 pm
    5K monitors coming in 2015? Well, hopefully that drives down the price of 4K monitors so we can all get our 4K gaming fix (here, here and here) without going bankrupt in the process. As global shipments of LCD monitors are expected to reach 136 million in 2014 followed by 132 million in 2015 and 128 million in 2017, vendors are looking to release high-end units in niche areas in order to remain profitable. Supply chain sources noted that Philips in particular is eyeing 5K monitor opportunities, and that most 5K panel supply in the market will come from LG Display. Comments
  • Windows 10 Natively Supports FLAC and MKV Codecs

    28 Nov 2014 | 2:11 pm
    It looks as though Windows 10 will feature support for MKV and FLAC right out of the box. This expands Microsoft's support for popular but less-than-standard file formats. FLAC joins MKV (one of the most common containers for H.264 video alongside MP4) and HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding), both of which were also confirmed by Aul on Twitter last month. Comments
  • NZXT Source 340 Mid-Tower Case

    28 Nov 2014 | 2:11 pm
    The NZXT Source 340 mid-tower chassis is on the test bench today at eTeknix. The S340 is the latest edition to the Source range, and there have been some pretty big changes to the general design. Gone are the sweeping curves and large sections of mesh ventilation. Now we have bold flat panels and a very minimalist look that has more in common with the H440 than it does with previous entries to the Source series. Comments

    Take me to your re-charging unit Like many others I was constantly checking the BBC livefeed and ESA reports yesterday as Philae landed. My interest is twofold (well threefold, but we will get to that): - Firstly, exploration of space is always fascinating and who knows what we will learn from this (It's quite scary the number of people arguing this is a a waste of money!) - Secondly, it's another episode in the application of the advances in modern Robotics - and for a good, not a dystopian, outcome. The potential of robotics is well showcased here - the downside (surveillance by Philae's…

    Fascinating article on Pando Daily about how the VC community has moved from funding high potential people to funding Assholes: Here’s the problem. Every venture capitalist, in every interview they’ve ever done will tell you the same casual lie: That they invest in people first and ideas second. They’ll tell you they invest only in people they’d want to work with. They’ll tell you that they have the luxury to say no to companies that don’t do things in line with the way they like to work, the way they like to treat people. You don’t have to look too far into this year’s…

Anyway, here are Gartners for the next few years (abridged by Broadstuff) 1) By 2018, digital business will require 50 percent less business process workers and 500 percent more key digital business jobs, compared with traditional models. Near-Term Flag: By year-end 2016, 50 percent of digital transformation initiatives will be unmanageable due to lack of portfolio management skills, leading to a measurable negative lost market share. 2)…

    Consumer electronic giants Google and Apple have now introduced a new encryption technology in their smartphones in an attempt to protect the privacy of their users. This new encryption technology makes it almost impossible for external entities to access and decipher sensitive information, this includes picture, text messages and e-mails. While this may come as good news to users, the U.S Department Of Justice has taken a strong stand against this level of encryption. The DOJ has sent notice’s to Google and Apple regarding this tech.

    The Indian Post is the world’s largest postal network with 1.55 lakh registered post offices. In the recent past, the Indian post had faced a significant decline in terms of volume of business. This was primarily due to the Internet. The internet rendered the traditional concept of writing letters almost obsolete. However, the same internet has now created a business opportunity that has been valued at almost 9 billion dollars for the same sector it almost destroyed a few years ago. This opportunity has come in the form of “last mile” delivery for the booming e-commerce…

  • Lessons On Censorship From Syria's Internet Filter Machines

    Emiliano De Cristofaro
    26 Nov 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Norwegian writer Mette Newth once wrote that: "Censorship has followed the free expressions of men and women like a shadow throughout history." As we develop new means to gather and create information, new means to control, erase and censor that information evolve alongside it. Today, that means access to information through the internet, which motivates us to study internet censorship. Organizations such as Reporters Without Borders, Freedom House, or the Open Net Initiative periodically report on the extent of censorship worldwide. But as countries that are fond of censorship are not…
  • DC Police Department Budgets Its Asset Forfeiture Proceeds Years In Advance

    Tim Cushing
    26 Nov 2014 | 6:18 pm
    Asset forfeiture may be the greatest scam perpetuated on the American people by their government -- and it's all legal. For the most part, assets seized translate directly to monetary or physical gains for the agencies doing the seizing, an act often wholly separated from any American ideals of due process. The New York Times recently obtained recording of asset forfeiture conferences which showed prosecutors advising cops on how to best exploit these programs to obtain additional funds and goods for their respective law enforcement agencies. In short, it appears that many agencies use asset…

    The just released version 14.11 of the Genode OS framework complements the framework's arsenal of device drivers with the Intel wireless stack. This way, Genode enables the realization of microkernel-based systems on modern laptops without relying on any kind of "device-driver OS" or "Dom0". Other highlights of the release are a new dynamic linker, VirtualBox 4.3.16 on the NOVA hypervisor, a new scheduler for the HW kernel, and networking for the Raspberry Pi. WiFi stacks are known to be extremely complex. In the Linux kernel, it is certainly one of the most sophisticated driver subsystems…

  • Windows 10 bumps kernel version to 10.0

    27 Nov 2014 | 7:24 am
    A long-standing oddity of Windows is that its branded number has for some years now not matched the version number stamped into the kernel and other parts of the operating system. Windows 7, for example, reported itself to software as being version 6.1. Windows 8 is 6.2, and Windows 8.1 is 6.3. Current public builds of Windows 10 repeat this trend - they purport to be version 6.4 - but not for much longer. Chinese site ITHome published a picture showing the version number to be 10.0. Version number 10.0 is also cropping up on BuildFeed which tracks build numbers, and has been further…

    The European Parliament has voted in favour of breaking Google up, as a solution to complaints that it favours is own services in search results. Politicians have no power to enforce a break-up, but the landmark vote sends a clear message to European regulators to get tough on the net giant. I'm glad they're keeping a close watch on these powerful companies, but a break-up? Good luck with that.

This Thanksgiving for example, my mother-in-law showed off some of her newest kitchen gadgets, including a turkey lifting hook. The hook helps you take the turkey off the roasting rack and get it onto the serving plate. That's a pretty specific solution for an infrequent (although potentially challenging) job. However, who hasn't experienced placing a soda, beer or bottle of wine in the freezer, just to have it freeze solid and sometimes…

    (See Update) November 14, 2014, via Reuters: Of 16 Glass app makers contacted by Reuters, nine said that they had stopped work on their projects or abandoned them, mostly because of the lack of customers or limitations of the device.

The truth is, you could pick out any year and read just as many articles about people who are going to start having a commercial version of a flying car next July. For some reason, next July is always far enough in the future so reporters will forget to check back in. Anyway, I just saw this and thought it was too 2006 to pass up.

  • When Responsive Design Meets SEO Headline Writing

    Rex Hammock
    1 Nov 2014 | 7:06 am
    In the olden days of print, there was a term called “orphan ” that referred to a headline or paragraph with a lonely word dangling on a line by itself. The copy editor would rewrite it “to get rid of the orphan.” (For a discussion of widows and orphans, see: http://www.magazinedesigning.com.) Today, when we all read our news on various size screens on sites with “responsive design,” the headline length is not measured by “size” but by its relationship to the width of a container that I’ll just call “a column” (i.e., 100% of…

    NoSQL databases are all the rage these days. A recent article by Matt Asay at InfoWorld argues that though Hadoop gets all of the credit for big data’s popularity, it’s actually NoSQL databases that are more often deployed. In fact, “while shopping for a Hadoop vendor is relatively straightforward, picking a NoSQL database is anything but. There are, after all, in excess of 100 NoSQL databases.” Matt lists MongoDB, HBase and Cassandra as three NoSQL databases to watch. If you’re a longtime Data Connections blog reader, you know that we’ve developed relationships with a number of…

    Creating the ultimate dream-team party in Dragon Age: Inquisition is something that all players want to experience, and in BioWare games, mixing and matching party members is half of the fun. Finding that perfect balance between Rogues, Mages and Warriors can be a long-winded process full of experimentation and testing.

Now, the company faces another PR challenge as a security researcher has found that the company’s Android app hoovers up all sorts of data on its users. According to security researcher Joe Giron, Uber’s app sends back a litany of data from the user’s phone — most of it unrelated to the apps functionality.

    The GoPro Hero4 has long been awaited by consumers as the company’s affordable 4K camera. And when they announced the GoPro Hero4 Black, a lot of people were excited to finally get their hands on a GoPro that can finally do 4K at 30 FPS as opposed to a semi-slideshow 4K 15 FPS which the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition was capable of in the previous generation. So, they increased the camera’s capability of recording 4K video from 15 FPS to 30 FPS and somehow they are now claiming that this camera is now worth an extra $100.

    Even when you have meetings all day… Even when you’re at a trade show… Even when you’re on the road, calling on one customer after another… Even when you’re on long, highly-productive conference calls (ha!)… …Take one communication action per day, and insist that your staff and colleagues each do the same. In 15 minutes or less (but often in 90 seconds), you can tell somebody who can buy from you about how they’d improve if they do so. Send an email. Write a hand-written note. At a trade show, tell a prospect about a customer like them. If…

In the room were about a dozen people: presidents, along with a number of heads of sales and customer service departments (my work focuses on changing the thinking and behavior of customer-facing staff).

    Most people spend their work days putting out fires, which, by definition, is reactive effort. It also tends to be the work of dealing with unhappy customers — who are complaining about an incorrect order, a delayed delivery, or simply demanding to have your product or service yesterday. When we spend our days, and years, this way, we begin to believe all of our customers are unhappy. This could not be farther from the truth. Think about your customers: most them have been with you for years. Decades maybe. They stay with you, because they are happy with you. If I were to ask your…

    Celkon has followed the lead of the likes of Micromax and Xolo, and entered the Windows Phone market. It was announced earlier in the year that Microsoft was going to slash the licensing fee for the Windows Phone 8.1 in order to bring more OEMs on board and expand its product catalog. This might be one of the reasons why Celkon has jumped in, and while not officially announcing the phone via a media note or anything substantial, the Celkon Win 400 has gone on sale on Snapdeal, here in India. The pricing of Rs 4,703 will make the Celkon Win 400 the most inexpensive Windows Phone 8.1 device in…

    The first thing that comes to mind when you read wireless charging is that of a phone magically charging the moment you’re in a particular zone; just like Wi-Fi. Sadly that’s not how wireless charging works in the present day. You need a charging base on which you need to place a wireless charging compatible phone and it starts charging. It works on the principle of inductive charging — where in the charging base and the phone has coils to transmit energy without having to connect any cable to the phone. Quite a lot of manufacturers attempted to crack the market and introduce…

    How often have you wished there was an easy way to watch all the favorite movies on DVDs on your iPhones and iPads? Despite of so many DVD rippers available today in the market, most of them are often too clumsy or take too long time to convert DVDs to supported video formats. Even if you manage to save some of those DVDs on to your hard drive (which will not be an easy task, given that most of the movies come in copy-protected DVDs now-a-days), playing them on your iOS devices via iTunes may not be as easy because of the number of tracks, sub-title files and folder structure of the DVD.

Perhaps inspired by the American teen sitcom “Sam and Cat” (Bots Cafe), he replaced the eatery’s human waiters/waitresses with autonomous robots. These are the first robots to replace humans in Chinese restaurants to take orders and serve customers their food and beverage at the tables. Each of these robots costs about $9500 (6000 pound sterling), they are not cheap; however, Mr. Lu figured out that they will save him a fortune in the long run in terms of employee salaries. Backed…

Of these, the most important change is the introduction of one-hand operation mode for Mi 3 and Mi 4 running MIUI 6.

And each next generation tosses out the stories of their elders. Perhaps it’s time to dispense with “Disruption”. “I’m never wrong.” Thus spake an East Coast academic, who, in the mid- to late-eighties, parlayed his position into a consulting money pump. He advised — terrorized, actually — big company CEOs with vivid descriptions of their impending failure, and then offered them salvation if they followed his advice.

    The sweaty palms, the nervous butterflies, the re-reading of your resume for the 1000th time, we all know interviews can be stressful.

Zingers like where do you see yourself in 5 years, why do you want to work for this company, why did you choose this school, it’s these questions that make interviews a pain.

There are many online services that offer this but when you are not in control of your own data you can get burned and I got burned badly when a short url service stopped working a while back and I lost all those saved urls. So I stopped creating shurls and I missed it. During the xmas holidays last year I was reviewing a list of domains that I owned to see if I really needed them all. (Lots of good ideas - not enough…

On my Mac I have fontbook which catalogs all my fonts and lets me quickly see the alphabet in that font but that is just not good enough. There are two things it doesn't do which I really miss.

Even in mid-2014, I spend a large amount of time teaching basic principles of enterprise architecture, and the need for adding form and structure to ICT strategies. Service-oriented architectures (SOA) have been around for quite a long time, with some references going back to the 1980s. ITIL, COBIT, TOGAF, and other ICT standards or recommendations have been around for quite a long time as well, with training and certifications part of nearly every professional development program.

    The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) is a not-for-profit think tank of volunteers that spend their time trying to better the internet. These people are the antithesis of cybercriminals; they spend their energy trying to figure out ways to make our data safer. They create best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing, or in this case, they determine how a cloud environment can be used to enhance and scale authentication for a service that can be cloud-based or private data center-based. Just last week, CSA announced the results of a worldwide Hackathon against an…

      In looking at the solutions available for threat protection (and detection), there are quite a few options out there. Some, like Damballa Failsafe, are network-based, vigilantly watching packets across the network and looking for indications of undesirable activities/behaviors and content.  Others are host-based, like Bit9 + Carbon Black, using an agent on the endpoint, to persistently defend the endpoint as a beachhead against undesired, malicious processes trying to execute. Each has its use cases and strong points, but together they provide a significantly broader perspective and…

    This week, Las Vegas hosted some 3500 people at the MGM Grand to mark Splunk .conf14, the annual user gathering for Splunk customers, referred to as “Splunkers”. For those of you not in the tech industry, spelunking, or the act of exploring caves, may come to mind. The theme of the conference was not cave exploration, but data exploration; however, the analogy of cave exploration actually aligns very well. “Splunkers” are diving into their data, delving deep into places that many have never explored before. Each of them finding new and cool ways to use the data that they have been…
  • Network Management: Still a ‘Must-Have’ for Enterprise IT

    It’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between hype and reality when it comes to topics such as cloud, ITaaS, SDN, DevOps, hybrid this and hybrid that. But there are a few certainties in the IT universe and one of them is that IT doesn’t function if all of the pieces can’t talk to one another, and that means the network needs to be rock solid. Some of that is under the control of enterprise IT teams as internal network infrastructure, but some of it isn’t, such as WAN or Internet. Because connectivity is so essential, no one questions the need for making sure the network is healthy…

    Last week, I attended a Citrix analyst relations summit program to learn about the company’s direction and strategy.  While the main-tent program was longer on vision than it was on execution details, there were some aspects of the proceedings that I found compelling. First off, there weren’t a lot of net new things being introduced, other than some roadmaps shared under NDA and a truly cool multi-station mobile work experience demo. But that’s ok.  Too often, tech companies feel compelled to forever be pushing “something new,” when in reality IT pros need vendors to stick to…

    We can all acknowledge that videos are a more popular and more powerful form of communication than words. Except for the literature enthusiast, most people would rather watch the movie than read the book. And even those who would read the book would rather watch the news than read a newspaper. Plus, what we see impacts us more than what we read because it seems much more real. That being said, blogs are still very popular and words are still necessary, even if it is only to accompany the video. There is a happy medium where the reader and the watcher can be found and that is in hosting or…

    It is a good idea to be in class and learn from a teacher but the downside of the current schooling system is that each teacher has to deal with too many students. On average there are 20 students in each class and this increases the chance that, by the end of the teaching session, some still don’t get the point that the teacher was trying to put across. To remediate to the problem enunciated, some students are advised to take private tutors. Up to now, nothing can beat a one-on-one form of teaching.

    Paul Crowe

    Our overnight idea screening tool, Ideas Overnight, has become a big hit with our clients. Since launching in March of 2014, over 30 clients in the US have used the tool to expedite and improve their innovation process. Interestingly, we still receive the occasional question of whether or not idea screening is a “validated” tool. Clients who aren’t quantitatively screening their ideas want to know whether or not idea screening can predict later concept scores (and, by extension, success in the market). I’ll admit that I have often taken this for granted as the typical non-quantitative…

    In my day-to-day work focusing on product development and product testing related issues, it’s always interesting to see that some of the seemingly most basic questions are the ones that are the most difficult. One of the struggles I’ve witnessed most recently is the struggle to identify the “right” competitive benchmark, whether the objective is to innovate or renovate. There are numerous trends impacting or fundamentally changing our ability to identify that one key competitor.

Truth be told, the level of information obtained from diaries is invaluable as it allows for an intimate glimpse into not only why respondents rate products and services the way they do, but also how those ratings might influence purchase decisions in the future. But, admittedly, capturing diary insights can be a bit cumbersome. Respondents are typically asked to record their behaviors and…

You maybe try a new brand of clothing, one that looks the same as the old brand. You vow to raise your hand more in class, but not enough to become the teacher’s pet. This came to mind when we were discussing the “Share a Coke” campaign (the one where they put people’s names and cutesy words like “Legend” and “BFF” and all kinds of things that grownups never say to one another on the cans…

    The Smart lighting industry deals with lighting technology that aims at efficient usage of energy. Lighting consumes a major portion of energy requirement so it comes as no surprise that energy efficient lighting is on the rise.

I recently bought this headset and why not write a review about it. To be honest, this is no high-end headset at all, but that was not what I was looking for. However, it is a good headset for the price. It is very light and easy to use. Put the Nano receiver in an available USB port and let Windows find the device.

    Thomas
    31 Aug 2014 | 12:35 pm
    When I first switched from Windows 7 to Windows 8. One of the first things I noticed was that even I was running Internet Explorer 11 on both operating systems, spelling control was not working the same way in IE 11 on Windows 8/Windows 8.1. In Windows 7 I was used to right click on a misspelled word and chance the language in case I was writing in another language in my default. In Windows 8 that is not the possible. My default language is Danish, but I often write in English as well. It toke me quite some time to figure out how I could get it to work in Windows 8, because I think it is a…

  • How to Fix no Audio Issues with FaceTime Video on iPhone 6

    Setu
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:16 am
    If you are making a FaceTime call on your brand new iPhone 6, and the other party is not able to hear you properly, it is quite likely that you have not taken the plastic wrap off the phone. The noise cancellation microphone between the camera and the flash is covered with the plastic wrap on a new iPhone 6. This causes the iPhone’s noise canceling algorithm to malfunction when you make a FaceTime call (or any call with the speakerphone on). In order to fix this issue, just take the plastic wrap off, or, if you don’t want to take it off until you get a case (totally understandable), use a…

    This year, Apple is selling a contract free iPhone 6 from day 1 of its launch in the US. This contract free iPhone comes bundled with a T mobile sim card which is creating a lot of confusion about whether the phone will be locked to the T mobile network. Apple support executives are further adding to the confusion by saying that only T mobile customer care can confirm this. And T mobile reps say that one has to get unlock codes from them to unlock the any phone on their network, however, they are not 100% sure about the iPhone 6.

  • How to Succeed in the Age of Organic Search

    Dave Paul
    28 Nov 2014 | 3:59 am
    In a recent piece from Search Engine Land, columnist Trond Lyngbø explained how organic search has changed business from a “selling cycle” of trying to reach consumers to a “buying cycle” of letting consumers reach you. Trond is right, and the new Internet economy means that consumers have the power to do more research, vet more options, and actively avoid being sold to. But when it comes to advice for how to succeed in that environment, Trond is surprisingly vague. He offers general suggestions like “assisting clients with buying decisions” and “sharing information about…

    26 Nov 2014 | 10:16 pm
    Being a Jerk Can Create Buzz, but It’s Horrible for Your Brand Bryson Meunier penned an op-ed over at Search Engine Land about the power of being a jerk online. Bryson suggests that Google’s algorithm—which is supposed to favor valuable, useful content—is actually skewed to reward rude behavior. In other words, Bryson says, if you want a lot of backlinks in a hurry, just be a jerk. To be clear, Bryson isn’t suggesting this as a valid link-building strategy. Quite the opposite: he views it as a flaw inherent in Google’s method to ranking websites, one that he considers quite…

    Recently, one of our writers cycled into Saltillo, Mexico, a town known for its museums, cowboys, gorditas and pan de pulque, a sweet bread made with fermented agave cactus. He wanted to get to a restaurant he had seen earlier in the day, but in the bustling historic downtown he had no idea where to find it. He entered the restaurant’s exact name into Apple Maps and waited for it to show up. Apple referred him to a cafe in San Francisco. Later, in the town of Cedral, he tried a simpler search: “hotels in Cedral.” Despite detecting his exact location in Cedral, Mexico, Apple Maps offered…
  • So, You Want to Rank on Bing (Not Just Google)

    Dave Paul
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:14 am
    Microsoft and Yahoo both use search results provided by Bing. Together, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. searches is handled by Bing—and a new contract with Firefox  could put that number even higher. Yet “Google” and “search” remain synonyms for many of us, and most SEO guides speak only of “ranking with Google” as if that’s all that matters. Is it?   The answer is definitely no. While some SEO tactics will work well with either search engine, the results that make the top page on the two are different, often with less than half of the same domains achieving the top spots. That’s…

One of my favorite shows of all time is “The Simpsons,” and as a proud owner of a new iPhone 4S at the time, I wanted to own this game.  In the end, it ended up owning me. The gist of the game is that Homer Simpson caused the town of Springfield to blow up, and now you, the "Sky Finger," must recreate the town and bring back all its residents. You make money by collecting rent from buildings and making characters do various jobs, which all take…

    The Sorcerer
    27 Nov 2014 | 5:32 am
    Mini-ITX motherboards need to be designed in a way that a PC builder will find it comfortable to implement in a mini-ITX case. Unlike cases made for mATX motherboards and upwards, mini-ITX cases will always have space limitations to provide a sleek and small form factor. A motherboard might look good in the pictures, open test benches and maybe in custom builds where the chassis is made around a motherboard., but in reality pairing the two from retail units is challenging. If you also notice, many case makers have semi-built systems with no cabling for the GPU and SATA drives, which usually…

    If we continue to tolerate this form of “entertainment”, before we know it, our society would be watching live porn right before their eyes and be so completely blinded and numbed by the media to see it as harmless amusement. Heck, it’s happening now—a lot of people aren’t even able to tell what can harm us as a society with the kind of sex-obsessed culture we are creating. We’re becoming more and more reckless, not considering the values we impart to the youth who will be left to run this world when the future comes. Is this what marketing has come to?

If you are running both Macs and PCs on your network, there’s a good chance you might want to share files between your Mac and PC. You can do this in one of two directions: either access Mac files from a Windows PC or access Windows files from a Mac. Today I’m going to talk about how you can share files on your Mac and access them on your PC. The process is fairly simple and should work as long as you are on the same…
  • How to Batch Change File Extensions for Windows Files

    Aseem Kishore
    23 Nov 2014 | 10:43 pm
    Recently, I came across a problem where I had to change the file extension on a bunch of Windows files from no extension to .JPG. Someone sent me a large number of files, but for some strange reason, they had no file extension, even though they were images! Once I added the .JPG extension to the end of the file, I was able to open the images. There are many other reasons why you may need to rename file extensions, so I’ll show you how you can change them one at a time if you have a small number of files or batch rename file extensions if you have lots of files. If you have a file with…

  • How to Add Your Own Subtitles to a Video

    Aseem Kishore
    20 Nov 2014 | 10:43 pm
    Recently, I downloaded a video off the Internet that was in Hindi and I needed to add English subtitles to the video so that I could share it with some friends. I checked out Windows Movie Maker, which has the ability to overlay text on video, but the feature set was very poor and it was nearly impossible to control where the subtitles showed up, for how long, and in what kind of format. Another problem with Windows Movie Maker is that you can’t create subtitles that show up as an option in DVD players; it’s either always there or not. After doing some research, I found that the…

  • Business Owners: Learn How To Communicate Securely With Your Customers

    Laura Jackson
    23 Nov 2014 | 12:05 am
    When you run a business, one of the most-important things you need to ensure is the security of sensitive data. The media is full of stories about how companies and even government departments lose data due to poor security. We live in such a busy digital age that we almost demand information get sent to us over unsecure means like email. I’ve lost count of the number of firms that send details like usernames and password over unencrypted email! These days, hackers don’t have to do much to gain access to supposedly secure systems.

    Some clients just suck. There’s really no nice way to put it. Learning how to expose and avoid them BEFORE you let them hire you will keep you from tearing your hair out (and stave off the gray hair for just a few more years). Of course, it’s fun to joke about it… but dealing with hellish clients is actually serious as… well hell! That’s because getting good at avoiding clients who just don’t fit well with your personality and how you operate will help you avoid getting seriously burnt out and overwhelmed. And, it’ll keep you loving your job which…

    I was recently asked: “How do I fill out my profile on sites like Elance and oDesk? How do I fill them out in a way that’s honest but more impressive than leaving them blank?” Here’s the simplest way I can put this… Your unique situation can and SHOULD be positioned to highlight your advantages. For example, when I started looking to get hired for freelance IT jobs I was completely self-taught and I believed that was a disadvantage. I believed coders who had gone to school were in a better position than me and would have an easier time convincing clients to hire…

    Getting to grips with Domino's square pizzas is easy with a bit of algebra. Robyn Lee/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDConsider a standard pizza box containing a standard circular pizza. How much more would you be willing to pay for a square pizza that filled the box? Clearly the square pizza contains more pizza: but is it worth the extra A$2 that Domino’s Pizza is asking? Domino’s has, for a limited time only (presumably before too many people examine the mathematics), resumed the offer of a surcharge of A$2 on any pizza to obtain a box full Square Puff option – a square rather than the…

    Harking back to the diet of the caveman. Flickr/George , CC BY-NC-SAWe still hear and read a lot about how a diet based on what our Stone Age ancestors ate may be a cure-all for modern ills. But can we really run the clock backwards and find the optimal way to eat? It’s a largely impossible dream based on a set of fallacies about our ancestors. There are a lot of guides and books on the palaeolithic diet, the origins of which have already been questioned. It’s all based on an idea that’s been around for decades in anthropology and nutritional science; namely that we might ascribe many…

    There is such a thing as 'too precise' when it comes to numbers. So what's appropriate? Erik Olsson, CC BY-NC-SAWhen numbers of any sort are presented in mathematics, science, business, government or finance, it’s fair to say a reader assumes that the data are reasonably reliable to their last digit. But presenting data to more digits of accuracy than is appropriate from the context can be deeply misleading, conveying much more reliability than is really present in the data. If a light bulb is listed as using 40 watts, then its actual usage is certainly not 20 or 60 watts, but…

The general consensus, both among industry experts and, as evidenced by growth figures put out by analysts such as IDC and Apps Run The World, is that the installed model is on its last legs and SaaS (software as a service) is how the majority of treasury systems will be deployed in the future. Given this backdrop, it’s not hugely surprising that the treasury vendors themselves are clamoring to talk about how their solutions are SaaS, in order…

However, whether it’s a newly rumored MacBook Pro or the long-whispered 12-inch MacBook Air, Apple’s Intel Core M notebooks won’t be like the others — think different, think Touch ID.For notebook makers large and small, the attraction of Intel’s Core M chips is that they consume only 4.5 watts. This compares very favorable with Ivy Bridge (7 watts) and Haswell (10 watts), in that Intel has greatly increased both performance per watt thereby delivering…

It’s a system that uses the block chain technology which underpins Bitcoin, but puts it to work in service of artists, so that they can verify that a digital work is an original, with a verifiable provenance. I describe the context of the work in A Bitcoin for Digital Art, my first piece for Medium’s “The Message” collection, and we also showed it off with a demo at the most improbable of venues, TechCrunch‘s Disrupt conference. The response overall has been great, as you can tell from the monegraph…
  • Snapchat’s future

    Apostolos
    18 Jun 2014 | 2:29 pm
    Our most basic need right after survival and concurrently a key quality of the human condition is the need to connect and communicate. I’m an avid Snapchat user for almost a year now and sold thenceforth on its ephemeral premise. A friend from the States dragged me into it long before it went huge in Europe as well1 — a great idea in retrospect, since it eliminated a lot of communication friction, both formal and informal. It connects. Snapchat’s “[…] pure sharing, the ‘lowest-commitment form of communication.’”. I’m also a Casey Neistat fan. And today…
  • Automate Git, g++, Dash with Bash

    14 Jun 2014 | 3:53 am
    I was browsing around Github when I found Jim’s Git-aware prompt repo. A nice bash hack to display the current git branch name in your terminal prompt when in a git directory. After installing it struck me1 — I can automate tedious terminal commands with Bash aliases. The general concept is that a Bash alias doesn’t accept parameters itself but it can call a function which does. g++ compiler alias I build my C++ source files with g++ -Wall -O3 foo.cpp -o foo. Now that’s a futile life; typing this multiple times a day. But thank Richard Stallman for…
  • On which a computer passes the Turing Test for the first time

    Apostolos
    9 Jun 2014 | 3:41 am
    Yesterday, a computer simulating a 13-year-old boy named Eugene passed the Turing Test at an event organized by University of Reading at London’s Royal Society. This is a huge and remarkable breakthrough in the AI front. The Turing Test is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human. It is, essentially, a conversation between three parties—Player A (human,) Player B (machine,) and Player C (human)—which are separated from one another. If the judge (Player A) cannot reliably tell the machine…

    14 Nov 2014 | 7:04 pm
    Day 3 for me started with an early breakfast. Serving breakfast to 13K+ people is a logistical feat made even more impressive when you see the scale of the dining facility. The hall is a gigantic warehouse-sized space on the lower floor of the Venetian whose far sides are hard to see from each edge. I somehow managed to be the first person at breakfast, due in large part to my East Coast body clock and an usher making a mistake in admitting me early. After walking for 10 minutes down aisles of wait staff directing me to a table like ramp service agents directing a plane, I managed to find a…

The Apple versus Amazon debate goes like this: Apple has shown an uncanny sense for creating new products. They are known for telling their consumers what they want, and delivering it fully functional with high profile launches. Think iPod, iTunes, iPhone and iPad. Amazon is known for delivering incrementally based on customer feedback,…

Unfortunately I didn't take the time to read up on what people were seeing before clicking on the Install button. If I had, I would have run this command and realized I would need 40 hours for this upgrade to complete (my upgrade restored ~5 files per second): $ find /usr/local | wc -l 772764…

A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…

You can read their launch post here. How does Abacus fix expense reports? When a company starts using Abacus, they link their bank account.

The recent parliamentary inquiry about the death of Fusilier Lee Rigby of the streets of Woolwich in 2013 attempts to shift the blame for the lack of intelligence about the two murderers onto internet and communications companies, but that should never be a role for private companies. After Rigby’s murder, an internet communications company, rumoured to be Facebook, passed details of a conversation one of the murderers had recently had with a foreign…

    Today’s new report by the Pew Research Center gives the lie to the notion that privacy is unimportant to the average American. Instead, the big take away is that individuals feel like they lack any control over their personal information. These feelings are directed at the public and private sector alike, and suggest a profound […]

    Hilton Lipschitz
    15 Nov 2014 | 12:27 pm
    I was asked in a blog comment today how I decide what to write about. And once decided, how do I go about doing it. In this case, the answer was easy, I decided to try to answer the question. And deconstruct the process I go through as it happens. Instructions: Read this post in black font first, then come back and look at the gray which deconstructs my thinking. Every story needs a starting point, I added the next paragraph in the second iteration of the post to create some context. And maybe to establish some kind of credentials and an authoritative tone. Why would you, the reader who does…
  • Lose the WWW

    26 Oct 2014 | 2:22 pm
    I have finally removed the www from hiltmon.com. The 1990’s have passed and www no longer makes sense in URL’s. Maybe it’s time you did the same to your site too. What triggered this change was that, as of 14 October 2014, Google Analytics started throwing an error if you had links to www.yoursite.com and yoursite.com. This is because it treated links with www and without as different. Removing the www was easy. I used Global Search and Replace (⇧⌘F in TextMate 2) to find //www.hiltmon and replace it with //hiltmon. Then regenerated the site. But we are still faced with…
  • Simple C++ Testing With Catch in Xcode

    26 Oct 2014 | 11:34 am
    Catch is a simple, open-source, dependency-free unit testing framework for C++ projects. In this post I show you how to use it in a Simple C++ Project from Xcode. Why Catch? I am writing fast C++ libraries for work and need to wrap them in unit tests to ensure that they continue to operate and perform as they evolve. My number one constraint is that these libraries must be dependency-free. The only tools that I may use to compile or install these libraries on any platform (in my case OS X and Linux) is a C++11 compiler and a C++ standard library. Nothing else. This dependency-free requirement…
  • Gist TextMate Bundle Updated for Yosemite

    Hilton Lipschitz
    18 Oct 2014 | 9:44 am
    Thanks to Michael Sheets, the Gist TextMate bundle now works in TextMate 2 on Yosemite. The issue was that the UI code in TextMate 2 relied on Ruby 1.8, and Ruby 1.8 is deprecated and no longer installed in OS X 10.10. Michael created a shim to fake Ruby 1.8 until such time as the code base moves to Ruby 2.0, implemented the change in the Gist bundle and it’s working now. You can get the source at GitHub or just wait until it gets propagates via TextMate 2’s bundle update process. Follow the author as @hiltmon on Twitter.
